THE DESTRUCTION CAUSED BY FLOOD 2010
Pakistan is undergoing a flash flooding never experienced in its recent history. The brutal water has destroyed all the low lying areas in all the four provinces and Gilgit Balitistan. People are quite in pathetic condition and they are in need of food, water, sanitation facilities apart from the rebuilding of houses. According to the official estimates of National Disaster Management Authority, over 18 million people are affected. Hundreds of thousands are still stranded in the water. Almost 1.3 million housing structures are damaged. The people are vulnerable. Al-though many local and international organizations are working to provide immediate relief to the affected people, but it seems to be beyond human capability to manage this gigantic disaster. Still a big number of needy people is in search of the basic amenities of life and they need almost every thing to survive.

The people are facing a great challenge after the flood and that is a threat of epidemics due to severe unhygienic conditions. As there is dirty muddy water all around, most suitable conditions for germs to breed and survive easily, unbearable bad smell of filth and remaining of dead bodies. In a nut shell these areas are not suitable for living a healthy life. Our volunteers are working dedicatedly to clean up the areas and white wash after required spray to kill the harmful insects and germ
